    What value would you put on my GC2 ?, left hand stock and action , MK1 without the power adjuster.
    Very low serial number 025L.
    5 slot stripper .
    Serviced by Dave Brayford last year.
    Tasco range finding scope 4-16x40 with twin reticule.

    WOW!

    To a collector, around £750, maybe a little more or less because it is left handed.

    I'm not sure. But I've got number 025 (right handed) sitting next to me. Just taken the action out to send off to Dave for a service :)
    Wonder what the two 25's would be worth as a pair. Probably no more than any other two :rolleyes:

    I think if I remember correctly 025L was on Holts Auction site some time ago as part of a pair , 025 and 025L ? Both had Leup scopes and had wooden cases.
    Both had been built for a couple who shot FT.

    Yes they were a pair. I was told that a couple ordered them from new together (his and hers).
    They were both on Holts, the left handed one sold quickly. The right handed one was 'won' several times but buyers didn't pay/show up so it went through the auction a few times
    I'm not sure about 025L, but 025 didn't have a box, and the scope was a Bausch and Lomb

    You may be right about the scope, Its just that I had it in my head that I had read they both had Leups and both were boxed . I have sent you a pm re paperwork .

    Now I am happy to be corrected, but one of the identifying characteristics of a 'Mk2' GC2 is the presence of a power adjuster.

    Other changes were the loading bolt being blued rather than silver and the writing on the left side of the bolt housing being changed from engraved to being gold coloured:

    To my eye the rifle shown in the first post is a MK1.

    Still a nice rifle though, but I wouldn't value it at any more than £700.

    It is I who stands corrected Dale , I must be looseing the plot ! .
    I bought it because it was a Mk1 and having owned a Mk2 you'd think I would know the difference by now.
    One thing I'm 100% on , it's a GC2 :)

    The name that's on some of the paperwork I have with the rifle is a Russell Chaplin or Chapman ?
